I have slashed and fringed areas of the quilt. The elements you see are next. I rarely bead unless it is an important part of the design. The beads are going to be important!
When quilters think of vintage fabric the sweet little prints of feedsacks and calicos come to mind. They know there are geometrics and novelty fabrics but they aren’t readily available. I hit the mother lode at an estate sale and have these for sale on ebay. It’s hard to part with them but not one more thing can come into my studio….oh, yeah, except for the 60 spools of Mettler thread and the split oak basket I also got at the sale!
